For those of you who are EC'ing a baby between 6-12 months old, I was wondering what you do when you leave the house. I'm getting a bit tired of lugging my BBLP with me wherever I go.<br><br>
I was looking at the Potette, but they're not available in Canada yet, and I can't seem to find a price on them.<br><br>
What type of porta potties are out there? Opinions?<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Do you have a boy or girl?<br><br>
DSs love to go standing, which makes using public restrooms alittle easier. And if he's not tall enough, I can hold him like he's standing infront of the toilet. Don't know how that would work with a girl.

I have a collapsible rubermaid container in my diaper bag. you could also try one of those folding toilet seat reducers and i also just got more comfortable with using regular toilets b/c it is a lot less hassle in the end.

This might work!!<br><br>
Sorry, I should have clarified that the potty is used in times when there is no toilet available (though, that said, we rarely use a toilet anyway, unless immediately after waking). I also don't hover her as she weighs over 20lbs, so she needs something to sit on.<br><br>
If I can find something for her to sit on (that has a hole in it), the rubbermaid will work just great, and I love how it would fit into a diaper bag.<br><br>
Although I think I'm going to buy a potette, once they become available in Canada.

I sat mine on the side of the women's toilet and held her, or held her over the potty in the in-arms position. No equipment necessary.

DD hates being held in the classic position and hates sitting on toilet seats (even w/ a reducer). She is 13 months and we still take the bblp w/ us everywhere. I just recently started taking the Potette, although it is not her favourite <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
